Post 291: Hacerse pato

Literally means to “turn yourself into a duck”, but its real meaning on Mexican slang, is “to play dumb”.

Ex.

Mi exnovio esta celoso de ti, pero se esta haciendo pato hablando con mi hermano / Mi exboyfriend is jealous of you, but he is playing dumb talking to my brother.

Learn spanish and other languages online talking native speaking teachers.

I hope you have learned something new, about the spanish that real Mexicans talk on their everyday life.

If you want to improve your Spanish, I also give tutoring lessons on skype using this page that host many teachers from all over the world, and while I don’t really do grammar, I can help with conversation and doubts about the language. Also, if you are interested in any language besides spanish, there are teachers and tutors for any language there.
